I'm working on the next Gumshoe Casefiles episode, it's just going to be later than the "1 to 2 weeks" I'd originally thought. Turning it into a series proved trickier than I'd imagined. Plus, y'know, I'm kinda lazy.
Instead of random cases like I'd first thought, future episodes will be in chronological order; not necessarily case 133,134,135, but I'll be going forward each time. This makes my life easier when it comes to relationships and story arcs (I have some ideas here...).
Like I said, I'm working on the next episode as we speak, and I hope to have the first draft done in a few days, then edited soon after. It's going to involve theft, corruption, a pawn shop and lotsa sarcasm (obviously). I'm actually having to research a few things which is a fun new experience; most of my work is fantasy and as such the research requirements are low.
In other news...
I have just finalised the tag line and blurb for my recently sold (and soon to be released) novella, A Reaper's Tale: The Undecided. Here they are, for your perusal:
Even Grim Reapers have bad days on the job.
Mal has managed to stay out of the afterlife for 31 years, despite having been dead for the last three. He's a Grim Reaper, and while he may not be the most enthusiastic, he enjoys his "life" too much to give it up to death. But he's got a problem. A troubled young woman's soul becomes bonded to his, and a vicious demon is hired to retrieve it.
If Mal can't get her soul free in a hurry, he's doomed to share her destination, whether it be heaven or hell.
Whaddya think? :)
